US stock futures plunge, trigger limit down trading halt, after Senate fails to agree on $1.6 trillion stimulus package

It’s shaping up to be another rocky week in the stock market. US equity futures fell sharply after trading opened at 6 p.m. ET, triggering a limit down trading halt.

The decline came after the Senate failed to agree on a stimulus package designed to fight the sudden economic fallout from coronavirus. The rescue package would amount to roughly $1.6 trillion of aid, according to Politico.

Major US stock indexes are fresh off their worst week since 2008. The sudden economic slowdown forced by the global coronavirus outbreak has prompted experts all across Wall Street to warn of an imminent recession.

The prospect of a prolonged economic contraction and the impact it will have on corporate profits have sent traders fleeing from stocks. Investors got an early sign of just how deeply coronavirus will impact the economy when jobless claims spiked to a two-year high last week.
